This methodof playing, though appropriate for certain rudimental-style solos and for drum corps and marching band,does not necessarily prepare the player to handle all of the musically demanding percussion parts intoday’s compositions. Generally accepted and employed practices in snare drumming styles should befollowed and taught regardless of one’s prior training, which is often over-balanced on the traditional andmilitaristic rudimental style.The “right-hand lead” system of using the right hand on all strong pulses within a framework of four notesis usually employed by teachers and students alike. The “right-hand lead” system works because mostpeople are right handed. By playing strong pulses with the right hand and the weak pulses with the left,natural and musical accents are achieved automatically, so to speak. This type of sticking is only appli-cable to the snare drum and, of course, students will ultimately strengthen and develop both handsthrough the use of technique studies.EQUIPMENTBasic instruments and related items needed include: a practice pad mounted on an adjustable stand, or asnare drum (with a Gladstone pad) on a stand, a music stand, a well-lighted and well-ventilated room inwhich to practice, a reliable metronome, general-purpose sticks such as Firth SD-1, a copy of Stick Con-trol by George Lawrence Stone, and at least one other substantial book such as Modern School for SnareDrum by Morris Goldenberg.BEFORE PRACTICE BEGINSA number of factors must be considered before practice begins. Many players “put in” time without reallyknowing how to practice. To realize optimum value from practice time, the practice session must be di-rected toward specific goals. Furthermore, one should have both long and short range goals. You shouldhave both “aural” and “visual” images in your mind of how a very fine player can perform. It is very impor-tant to hear excellent playing, both live and on recordings, so you will have some sense of direction to yourpractice. Ask yourself what your greatest weakness is at the moment. It could be the sound, facility, read-ing or simply the need to learn more new literature. Are there technical problems to overcome? How doesthe music you are working on now relate to these problems? With specific goals in mind, you will receivethe most benefit from your practice.MATCHED OR TRADITIONAL GRIP?The position of the snare drum (or practice pad) is altered slightly when the player utilizes the matchedgrip. Since the grip for both sticks is the same as the right hand of the traditional method, there is no needto tilt the drum. The instrument should be parallel to the floor. The top of the drum should be a few inchesbelow belt height.

Many of the problems encountered while teaching beginners can be traced to the somewhat unnatu-ral left-hand portion of the traditional grip. This can result in excessive teaching and practice time beingdevoted to making corrections of the left hand. With the matched grip, special left-hand problems arealmost eliminated.Muscular transference between the different percussion instruments is another point in favor of thematched grip. If the basic areas of percussion (snare drum, timpani, mallet-keyboard, drumset, multiple,etc.) are played using a similar grip, the student will progress more quickly toward becoming a well-rounded percussionist.The matched grip adapts very well to the drumset, especially the now popular melodic tom-tom setups,and to the increasingly difficult solo multiple percussion repertoire. The traditional grip evolved as a resultof the snare drum being carried originally and exclusively on a sling. With the advent of newer devicesdesigned to carry the marching drum “level,” there may be very little need for the traditional grip. Manydrum corps and marching bands now use matched grip as a result of the newer carrying devices beingavailable.Inasmuch as today’s percussionist is often expected to play a wide variety of instruments (and play themvery well!), the matched grip has tremendous advantage in versatility and flexibility when moving from oneinstrument to another. While the traditional grip is in no way obsolete, the matched grip is recommendedfor training the total percussionist and indeed serves as the consistent approach to percussion educationand performance for many successful percussionists.WHEN AND HOW LONG TO PRACTICEMost musicians who plan to become professional players will practice at least four hours per day, perhapseven more while in college, conservatory or equivalent level of study. It is a good idea to practice as oftenas possible, the following minimum guidelines are recommended: Grade school/junior high 45 minutes per day High school 1 hour per day College and beyond 2 hours per dayIt is not wise to suddenly embark on long and intense practice sessions. Rather, the preferred methodwould be to gradually increase the practice session by one-quarter to one-half hour each day until thedesired number of hours have been reached.

Another very real consideration may be times when practice facilities and instruments areavailable, especially in a university or conservatory.HOW AND WHAT TO PRACTICEThe ideal practice session must consist of a warm-up period, technical work, solo and ensemble literature,sight reading and perhaps finally, a “cool down” period to relax the mind and muscles before practice endsfor the day.Creating a good practice attitude is very important. The practice session should be viewed with enthusi-asm, pleasure and eagerness to achieve, rather than a chore or boring or drudgery. A positive attitude hasdirect influence on the levels of concentration, care and patience in a practice session.Concentration involves the use of your complete mind. Do not think of other things while you are practic-ing. Take care that you are indeed playing the correct notes, rhythms, dynamics, etc. Always check anddouble check to make sure that mistakes are not creeping into your work. Often it is more difficult to “un-learn” mistakes that have been practiced for a period of time. Students often learn pieces badly becausethey are impatient. Passages should not be played any faster than they can be played well. Instead oftrying to learn a long piece all at once, divide it into sections, learning one at a time. Do not hesitate tocount aloud. Finally, as it sometimes happens, do not become discouraged if you cannot play somethingas well today as you could yesterday.USE OF THE METRONOMEThe original purpose of the metronome was only to provide a reference with which tempos could be accu-rately measured and specified. There are various schools of thought among musicians concerning use ofthe metronome. Practicing with a metronome has been criticized by some musicians as “making you toomechanical.” Still others maintain that only through discipline will freedom evolve. To acquire concert-performance control of rhythm, with all its nuances, a knowledge of the subtle use of metronome tech-nique is quite necessary.The two primary uses of the metronome are: to set an absolute tempo (number of beats per minute) andto act as a guide in learning complex rhythms. Because percussionists are expected to have flawlessrhythm and the ability to hold steady tempos, use of the metronome is absolutely essential. The value ofusing a metronome when practicing cannot be overly emphasized. Many performance problems related to“rushing” or “dragging” would be virtually eliminated by using a metronome for all practice sessions.

A composition is begun with the metronomeand then the metronome is turned off. Later during the playing at presumably uniform tempo, the instructorchecks the tempo and can inform the student(s) exactly how much the tempo has drifted. Just as somemusicians can acquire a sense of absolute (or nearly absolute) pitch, so musicians can acquire a sense ofabsolute (or nearly absolute) tempo.Training the muscles, eyes, ears and minds of young players requires enormous amounts of repetitive drillin order to achieve superior results. Unfortunately, many young people today who are victims of the “imme-diate gratification syndrome” lack the necessary discipline to become truly good performers. There simplyis not a shortcut for the methodical, logical and gradual development of one’s playing ability over a periodof time.OTHER AIDS FOR PRACTICINGIn addition to the metronome, other teaching and learning aids can and should be utilized as the needarises. Playing along with a CD or cassette recording is very useful. To learn the symphonic repertoire,play the percussion part along with the recording. One can repeat certain passages over and over. Themusic-minus-one concept is a very good one, whereby all the parts are recorded on the recording exceptyour part, which you are to perform and blend in with the recording.The tape recorder is especially helpful for recording lessons and practice sessions, then playing back tolisten, analyze, and critique your own ability. Another use of the tape recorder is to record the piano ac-companiment to the solo or recital piece you intend to perform. By practicing with the tape you will becomemore familiar with the piano accompaniment and learn exactly how your part fits with the rest of the music.The videotape is another useful tool for practice and study. A number of very fine instructional videotapeshave been made by outstanding professionals, too numerous to mention here. When a video camera isavailable, you can record not only how you sound but also how you look, an additional aspect of perfor-mance. By viewing the videotape, one can readily recognize any physical problems in the setup or in one’splaying technique.CONCLUSIONFinally, understanding styles of drumming is also an important aspect of practicing. It is unfortunate tohear a drummer play eighth notes in strict fashion if the composer has indicated that a syncopated style isto be used. It is just as unfortunate as welI as annoying to hear a drummer give a free syncopated inter-pretation to eighth notes if a strict and literal rendition is intended.The best method of gaining control and technique of various drumming styles is to have experience inplaying them in ensembles, which employ them most frequently. A well rounded experience is essential inorder to meet the demands of today’s musical requirements, unless the individual drummer never expectsto perform in any but the one or two types of organizations in which he or she may have had some experi-ence.

The most difficult types of passages are the soft, rapid series ofstrokes and the pp roll, especially when these occur as solos. These two problem techniques should bepracticed on the drum rather than on the practice pad. The ultimate goal of practice is to be able to play apassage at any dynamic level and speed without losing control. “One of the most effective ways of reach-ing this goal is to practice exercises from books such as Stick Control by George L. Stone and TheDrummers Rudimental Reference Book by John Wooton.” Individual Snare Drum Methods and Supplemental Studies From Teaching Percussion (2nd.
